Along with results that matter most to our clients, we’ve also garnered awards recognition from the likes of Cannes Lions, the Effies, and Media Week.
The MMG Difference
Media planning with a creative flair
There was a day when media planners occupied the nerd floor of the agency while the creative teams transformed the rest of the building into party central. That dynamic is dead. Today, effective media planning and buying requires a mix of geek data and creative thinking. Only then can you deliver ROI and give brands a stronger voice in an era of unprecedented marketing noise.
As integrated and contributing partners for agencies, we work with business and creative teams to find compelling, engaging, and creative solutions. With direct clients, we’re equally as agile; valued for our focus on problem-solving and our willingness to explore new opportunities for success in an evolving marketing landscape.
LOCAL & BIG AGENCY CHOPS
With deep experience at both global agencies and independent shops, as well as various marketing firms, our team is armed with a solid background to tackle any media challenge.
THE BIGGER PICTURE
With our strategy of blending data-driven insights with inventive planning and buying, our eye is always on the larger mission of solving our clients' business problems.
No inflated egos or inflexibility here. Our group is cohesive, responsive, friendly, and best of all, "good gene pool" smart. The best results come from a strong working alignment with our clients.
THE MERLINO MEDIA GROUP
EXPERIENCE IS ONLY THE START
At Merlino Media Group, we’re deeply experienced in media planning and buying. But it takes more than that to help us achieve the outstanding results we strive for with every agency partner and client. The people who work here are also smart, curious, tenacious, thoughtful, honest, dedicated, respectful, risk-takers, team players, hard workers, speak media as a second language (if not first), and occupy mindsets that live in the convergence zone between big data and unbridled creativity.
We don’t think that’s too much to ask. In fact, we think it makes our people pretty incredible and inspiring. Thanks for reading about our team.
